To be continued little by little because what comes will not be sweet music for all ears. If poison is injected all of sudden, death is immediate. But if poison is injected little by little the body gets a chance to adapt and survive in a poisonous way, a bit like COVID 19. In the old days, there was the following way to kill one’s enemies. One girl would ingurgitate small amounts of poison from a young age. She would actually become poisonous and by kissing the enemy he would die of poisoning. Simple!
“Therefore eating is so important thing. And the germs, they come out from the mouth very easily. Very easily. Formerly there was politics, they were called visa-kanya, “poison girl.” The politicians used to keep. I do not know whether nowadays the politicians keep, but we find from Vedic literature, visa-kanya. Visa-kanya means a girl, from the childhood, is injected poison, little by little, little, little, little, little. So when she is grown up, she…, whole body is poisonous. So the politician used to engage such girl to kill the…, his opponent politician. Very nice, beautiful girl, and [s]he will go, and as soon as the kissing will be there, he will die. Just like poisonous. Yes, it is fact; it is not story. I read in medical journal. There was one… Not medical journal; in logic class. It is called some “Typhoid Mary.” “Typhoid Mary.” A girl whose name was Mary, wherever she would go, all the people associating with her will be attacked with typhoid. Then the medical board examined her blood, that she is full of typhoid germs. So therefore wherever she goes, people become infected. These are medical facts.
So therefore association is so important. Sangat sanjayate kamah [Bg 2.62].”

In any case, we would like to quote Srila Prabhupada’s definition of TRUTHFULNESS from Bhagavad-gita As It Is 10.4-5, purport:
“Satyam means that facts should be presented as they are for the benefit of others. Facts should not be misrepresented. According to social conventions, they say that we can speak truth only which is palatable to others. But that is not truth speaking. Truth speaking should be straight and forward, so that others will understand actually what the facts are. Suppose a man is a thief. Now if a person is warned that he is a thief, that is truth. But because it is unpalatable understanding, because a man thinks that if people find out that man is a thief it is unpalatable, therefore I shall not speak, but that is not truthfulness. Truthfulness means things should be presented as they are for the benefit of others. That is the definition of truth.”
One cannot feign or pretend to be Krishna conscious. That is not possible. One can only hide and hope for better times to come. But still, always chant Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare / Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. It is not by hiding that the problems go away. This is similar to the rabbit’s behavior, who “dies peacefully” in Srila Prabhupada’s example:
This kind of forgetfulness means — I have already given several times — the rabbit, when they find some hunter, they close their eyes, yes, as if the hunter has gone away. But that is not the fact. That is his foolishness. Simply by closing the eyes, he’s thinking, “Now I am safe.” So these materialistic persons, denying the next birth, denying sinful activities, denying God, they’re closing their eyes, that “There is no danger. Let us go on doing all this nonsense.” But that will not save. That will not save. Every…
